Barry M Royalty & Matte Collection [Preview Only!]

As you know, Barry M are releasing their polishes on Wednesday 25th September (This Wednesday guys!)
Well, I went in to Superdrug today just to pick up a white nail polish...
So I off I wander to the Barry M stand because you know, it's the first place I go for any polishes!
And what more did I see but some beautiful polishes from the Autumn/Winter Collection staring back at me.

I let out a little squeal of excitement, grabbed a basket and started a frenzy of polish collecting. It's safe to say I got a few odd looks from people as I bounced with the excitement.
The only Matte polish they didn't have in stock was Vanilla, but I'm not fond of neutrals anyway so I might just keep that one out of my collection.
I was mostly excited about the textured ones, and damn I'm so glad they were out early.
Phew these are gorgeous!

Have a pic!
My Purchases of today!
So, here's the plan!
  • Matte Polishes- there's gonna be a messy-swatch post somewhere in the near future
  • Limited Edition (one on the right) will be swatched on top of a matte polish
  • Crystal Glaze (second from right) will also be swatched on top of a matte in the first post =)
  • Textured Polishes- big swatch and review post coming up! Because they're just so damn pretty!
In the meantime, have a snippit of what's soon to come :D

Enjoy, and I shall see you soon with a mahooooosive Barry M Textured post, because they're just so beautiful! <3 <3 <3
Much love!

Your Guide to Barry M Gelly's!

Finally, the time has come for the ever-promised "Barry M Gelly Polishes Review & Swatch" Post! YAY! Now, now, settle down, settle down, and prepare yourself for an image-heavy post!

Okay, so that picture isn't too great. But there's the colours that between us (Me and Rhian) have in the Gelly range. We're only missing "Grapefruit" I think...

Swatch Watch: OPI 'Sprung'


Wooo time got away from me for a couple of weeks. Has it really been so long already? My apologies to any of you who have been eagerly waiting for new swatches (I know I have)! To make it up to you I've got a swatch for you today which, in my opinion, is pretty "in season" right now. I'm talking about the Rose Gold trend that's been going on for a year or two now - who would of known it would become so popular?

Today's nail polish is: OPI 'Sprung'. It sounds like it should be a spring green kinda colour... but nope! This polish is a beautiful rose-gold kind of colour with a perfect amount of shimmer to be classy and sophisticated. Don't believe me? Here it is!

Fact File:
Brand: OPI
Polish Name: Sprung
# of coats: 3 + (applies quite thin)
Finishing Texture: Smooth, shimmer
Cost: £3.10 at the time of writing, on

So I paired this polish with this gel-finish dotty topcoat... thing. That sadly, has no name, and was bought by my roommate…

Avril "Mille et une nuits" #32*

*This post contains an item sent to me in exchange for an honest review. Here it is a nail polish by Avril, called "Mille et une nuits" - No32.

Hello folks!

How are you all doing? How am I doing? Where am I? Who am I? So many questions...

To answer a few... I hope you are doing fine.
Yes, I am fine thank you.
I am in England, once again. For a long while this time.
I am Rachel, as always. And I have been missing from the blogging world for a couple of months.

The past 2 weeks I have spent job-searching (with success, yay!), catching up on Suits, and binge-watching Scandal. I want you all to go and do some homework and watch Scandal so I have somebody to talk to about it. Seriously.

Anyway, a few months ago I was lucky enough to be contacted by Avril - a french beauty brand which pride themselves on not testing on animals, and ensuring any of the ingredients used are also not tested on our furry friends. I highly respect this, and think that all companies should follow their …
